Saxon To Release Live DVD
Saxon are to release a live DVD in early 2012.
It’s to be called Heavy Metal Thunder Live: Eagles Over Wacken, and will feature performances from the Wacken Festival.
“There are five in all, from 2002 to 2009,” says Biff Byford. “But we’ve not got all five shows, in their entirety, because even I would get bored watching that! The most interesting one is 2009, which was Wacken’s 20th anniversary and our 30th. We did a set that included songs from all of our studio albums, as voted for by the fans. And we did it with the most recent at the start working backwards to our debut album, Saxon, at the end.”
The band have also revealed to Classic Rock that they’ve been working on an unplugged album.
“What we’ve been doing aren’t necessarily the hits, but songs that sound good in an unplugged style. We will definitely be doing an album, although I don’t know how we’ll put this out. It may as a bonus CD with the next studio album.”
